From September through to June each year, the Hornsey Historical Society organises a series of monthly talks. Talks cover a wide range of topics relating to the history of the local area and to London.
When and where?
They take place at 8.00pm on the second Wednesday of the month at the Union Church Hall, (corner of Ferme Park Road/Weston Park) N8 9PX. Doors open at 7.30pm for the sale of refreshments and publications and talks start promptly at 8pm.
The main doors have to be closed at that time for security reasons, so anyone arriving after then will be unable to gain access. A donation of £2 is requested from non-members. Further details can be found in the talks section of our What’s On page.
